Bespoke Turkey organised a great sightseeing holiday for us. We loved Turkey and the hospitality shown when we visited Istanbul, Cappadocia and Pammukale.
Here we have put together the highlights of the Eastern section of the route into one week’s hiking The Lycian Way. Enjoy the pretty mountain villages and coastal towns including: Adrasan, Cirali, Ulupinar, Tekirova & Beycik. Discover the ancient ruins at Olympos, the natural wonder of Chimera & climb the highest peak in the region, Mount Tahtali. There is also an optional boat trip on the rest day to explore the beautiful turquoise seas and surrounding islands.

The Lycian Way Eastern Section Trip Schedule
Here is the schedule for our Lycian Way holiday. If you would like to discuss any changes then contact us here
Private transfer to Adrasan, accommodation on Adrasan beach, (depending on arrival time) chance to explore the area, swim/relax evening meal at accommodation
Walk from here to the lighthouse and beyond returning to Adrasan. The walking is mainly through sparse pine forest steady climbs to the lighthouse and beyond with fine coastal views of the islands close to shore.
Luggage transfers to Cirali. Today’s walking takes you over “Moses” Mountain (980mtrs), through very pretty, lightly wooded pine forest with magnificent views near the summit of surrounding mountains and valleys then descending through ancient woodland to the historic ancient ruins at Olympos and onto Cirali.
Leaving Cirali you will make a climb to the Chimera (natural gas flames) on the mountainside onwards and upwards to pretty village of Ulupinar with its abundant trout streams and restaurants on finally to Yukari Beycik
Chance to relax on the lovely beach at Cirali, explore Olympos or take an optional gullet (wooden boat) trip to nearby islands.
takes you over the pass of Mount Tahtali with magnificent views then returns the way you came back to Yukari Beycik. There is an option to climb the mountain as we can arrange a local guide – we do not recommend attempting to climb the mountain without one.
This long coastal route is much flatter and therefore easier walking than previous days with fine views of beaches ad deserted coves.
